  • I’m Currently Obsessed With…MAC Punk Couture Collection Nail Lacquer in Dark Angel

    Even though we are smack dab in the middle of spring, I cannot help but want to add some edge to my look which means swapping out the bright, vivid hues of spring for some deep, dark, goth-inspired shades. That’s where MAC’s Punk Couture Collection Nail Lacquer in Dark Angel comes in. This absolutely gorgeous goth romantic dark lilac shade is both chic and hard creating a look that is not for the faint at heart. I love the idea of pairing this sinister shade with some of the ultra lightweight feminine and all-white looks for summer.

  • Product Review: Milani Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer

    Eyeshadow primer has become one of my must-have beauty products. For so many years, I didn’t realize the importance of using a primer before applying my eye makeup. From staying power to helping intensify the pigmentation of your shadows, a good eyeshadow primer is the foundation to any gorgeous eye look. My new favorite eyeshadow primer is the amazing Milani Eyeshadow primer. This creamy, lightweight primer glides on smooth with a slight hint of color which evens out my complexion and prepares my eyes for shadows of any kind.

    What I love about this primer is that it keeps my shadows from creasing and slipping. It also maintains my eye look all night. I don’t have to worry about sweating, humidity or even rain causing my eye makeup to move. This primer works on all skin tones which is yet another benefit. I highly recommend this primer especially for makeup newbies in search of an affordable option.

    • Bright Lip Color – Spring is the time when color bursts at the seams. From flowers blossoming to fruit trees bursting with life, color engulfs our world in the spring as all living things come alive during this bountiful season. One way to instantly liven up your look is with a captivating bright lip color. You can certainly opt for one of last spring’s vivid hues in your beauty collection however if you want to pump things up a notch – opt for a neon bright version in a semi-matte finish.
